A friend of mine recently ended a long-term relationship and I asked her why. Her response was beautiful, powerful, and also deeply sad. “He wasn’t brave.” I’ve been thinking a lot about the concept of bravery. It’s underrated, and yet it can make a world of difference in the lives we live and the impact we have. So whether you’re going through a big change this year, starting a new project, or standing up for your beliefs, I hope 2017 is the year that personally and collectively we decide to be brave and support one another in its pursuit.
